Very early heading
GRAZER NOVA heads very fast after sowing. With the score of 1 for heading on the scale from 1-9 in Germany (BSA) it is amongst the earliest available.
Very productive variety
Right from the 1st cut, the yield is +35% compared to standards. Good lodging tolerance Despite the early heading the lodging resistance is good when the cut is taken at the optimal stage.
As a diploid the dry matter content is about 2% higher than for tetraploids. This allows faster drying in the field and easier conservation as hay or silage without compromising forage quality.
